Coca-Cola has been accused of reverse racism after a training video for its employees told them to “try to be less white”.

The soft drink giant has been slammed for the racial discrimination training after a disgruntled employee shared it on social media and it went viral.

The training seminar was shared on LinkedIn with slides that featured tips on how “to be less white”, including being “less ignorant,” and “less oppressive”.

I'm not outraged.  I'm inspired.  Being a racism sensitivity coach is my dream job.  Whoever cooked this is is living the dream!

Haha yeah, I guess this is the brave new world we live in and we should lay back and enjoy.

I would have thought to being less white we could just brown ourselves in the sun or something, but I think that's too simple.

If I were brainstorming with whoever came up with this then I'd recommend that they slowly try to push their employees into adopting blackface to promote racial sensitivity.

Think of the headlines and the troll potential!

Now that's real thinking! I think every workplace should have a 'blackface' day. Or maybe even a week to show solidarity with our melanin heavy friends

You're also incredibly inconsistent. Reading through your posts you seem to think Australia should be less white but you take issue with Coca Cola asking their employees to be less white. I said it earlier you are constantly contradicting yourself.

If you have an issue with me then I won't respond to your posts, it's ok. Honestly I think you're one of the most boring characters here. You post walls of text where no point is raised and that's not what I'm here for.

It does seem pointless to converse with someone who debunks their own points, often in the same post.

Coca Cola can make their workforce less white if they like. Maybe they have data showing that the less white their workforce is the more profitable it is.

Amazon found out that increased diversity makes unionisation less likely so it's in their interests to have the most diverse workforce they can.

You are quite abrasive anyway. I will try to avoid responding to your posts but can't guarantee I won't post in the threads you start as you seem to be the most active user here.

Humour and sarcasm really is a foreign concept to a boring hate filled racist POS NAZI supporting stiff like you isn't it?

Of course I think the 'be less white' is shitty PC woke BS in the extreme. I'm really not going to waste energy getting raged about it. So I'm just going to chuckle at the mind boggingly stupidity of it instead

You're not even permitted to post in the upper boards and tired if you seeing you spam your usual triggered shit in it. Reply here again and I'll report it for whatever that's worth these days.

It's more about power and perception,  they did a study comparing students at a well off school and a disadvantaged school. 
The students at the well off school were assertive, outspoken confident, whereas the students at the disadvantaged school were quiet, reserved, less outgoing and prone to angry responses when pushed.

These attitudes can carry over into the workplace,  some of the well-to-do think they are entitled and rules don't apply to them,  they are more likely to cheat on their wives, break the speed limit when driving,  and treat anyone below them with contempt.  As an experiment they put out a dish of chocolates with a sign,  "These Chocolates are for the kids".  The more senior the management the more likely they were to grab a handfull of chocolates as they went past.  They think rules don't apply to them. 

These attitudes of "Try to be less white"  could be better summarized as "Don't be an asshole"

In 1999 Coca-Cola’s reputation was dealt another blow when 1,500 African American employees sued for racial discrimination.The lawsuit,which eventually grew to include 2,000 current and former employees,accused the company of discriminating in areas of pay, promotion, and performance evaluation. Plaintiffs charged that the company grouped African American workers at the bottom of the pay scale and that they earned around $26,000 a year less than Caucasian employees in comparable jobs. The suit also alleged that top management had known about company wide discrimination since 1995 but had done nothing about it. In 1992 Coca-Cola had pledged to spend $1billion on goods and services from minority vendors, an action designed to show the public that Coca-Cola did not discriminate, but the lawsuit from its own employees painted a different picture. Although Coca  -Cola strongly denied the allegations, the law suit provoked unrest within the company. In response, Coca-Cola created a diversity council and the company paid $193 million to settle the claims.

Yep. The 'diversity council' (which their stupid 'try to be less white' is probably a product of) is just theatrics. They just say what they think the public wants to hear but on the inside they are still rotten to the core

It's like Australias own Prime Minister. He hires (at $200K tax payers expense) an 'empathy coach' and his job is to tell the Prime Minister how he can pretend to care about people because our PM is totally devoid of any himself. There is no conviction in anything he says. Everything he says is carefully managed to hit the right notes with the public but just like Coca Cola, it is empty.

Of course, the whole 'Try to be less white' takes it next level ridiculous. I wonder if the intent is actually to trigger the snowflakes to getting blood raged with their 'it's OK to be white' slogans while Coca Cola tries to come out on top as woke. And as thy say, any publicity is good publicity

Sensitivity training is a grift, corps do it to seem accepting, and they don't really care what the seminars entail. The people coming up with the seminars don't really care either so they're just like "uh sensitivity training, ummmm idk just don't be white or smth" and then no one checks it because no one really cares.

Although I really wish people would just stop posting outrage stories such as "some dumb person did some dumb thing somewhere". The world has 7 billion people. You can find weird shit if you look hard enough. It's not important. There is some people who base their entire worldview on incidents like that instead of anything with real and broad consequences and it's just kind of bad.

Like, this has no consequence. The Amazon union busting video however DOES have consequence:

The Coca Cola Colombian death squads also have consequence: https://www.theguardian.com/media/2003/jul/24/marketingandpr.colombia

Cokes ceos couldn't care less about freedom. They see a more diverse, less white workforce as more profitable for Coke. I don't think anyone actually believes coke cares about the race if their employees. They just care about exploiting them.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2021/03/11/amanda-gorman-white-translator-spain/

A Catalan translator has been removed from a job translating the poem by National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman that she presented at President Biden’s inauguration because, as a White man, he did not fit the “profile,” AFP reported.

The move by Barcelona publisher Univers marks the second instance of controversy in Europe around the choice of a White person being chosen to translate “The Hill We Climb” by Gorman, who is Black, and at 23 became the youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history.

Translator Victor Obiols told AFP on Wednesday that Univers had commissioned him last month to translate Gorman’s work into Catalan, a language spoken in Spain and Andorra. After he completed the job, the publishing house informed him he “was not the right person,” he said.

“They told me that I am not suitable to translate it,” Obiols told AFP. “They did not question my abilities, but they were looking for a different profile, which had to be a woman, young, activist and preferably Black.”

“It is a very complicated subject that cannot be treated with frivolity,” he continued. “But if I cannot translate a poet because she is a woman, young, Black, an American of the 21st century, neither can I translate Homer because I am not a Greek of the eighth century BC. Or could not have translated Shakespeare because I am not a 16th-century Englishman.”

Obiols said he would still be paid for his work. Univers did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

Earlier this month, an author quit a job translating Gorman’s poem into Dutch following objections to their appointment by Dutch publisher Meulenhoff because they were not Black.

Marieke Lucas Rijneveld, a 29-year-old winner of the 2020 International Booker Prize, said they were thrilled to be chosen because “at a time of increasing polarization, Amanda Gorman shows in her young voice the power of spoken word, the power of reconciliation, the power of someone who looks to the future instead of looking down,” the Guardian reported.

But some critics questioned why the opportunity had not gone to a translator with experiences more similar to Gorman’s, given that the craft is also an act of interpretation.

“Isn’t it — to say the least — a missed opportunity?” Dutch journalist and activist Janice Deul wrote in a piece in de Volkskrant, according to the Guardian. “They are White, nonbinary, have no experience in this field, but according to Meulenhoff are still the ‘dream translator’?”

Deul asked why instead a “spoken-word artist, young, female and unapologetically Black” — like Gorman — was not commissioned.

“I’m not saying a Black person can’t translate White work, and vice versa,” Deul told the BBC. “But not this specific poem of this specific orator in this Black Lives Matter area, that’s the whole issue.”

Quinsy Gario, a Black Dutch spoken word artist, agreed. “The Dutch language needs to have a conduit, a person that’s been able to push to the same extent as Amanda Gorman did, and connect to a local understanding of what those words mean, and how those words can resonate,” Gario told the BBC.

Meulenhoff said Gorman herself had approved Rijneveld’s appointment, though no Dutch Black spoken word poets were among the options, according to the BBC.

After Rijneveld’s resignation, the publishing house’s general director, Maaike le Noble, said the company wanted “to learn from this by talking and we will walk a different path with the new insights,” according to the Guardian. “We will be looking for a team to work with to bring Amanda’s words and message of hope and inspiration into translation as well as possible and in her spirit,” he said.

Rijneveld said in a statement on Twitter that they were “shocked by the uproar surrounding my involvement.”

“I had happily devoted myself to translating Amanda’s work, seeing it as the greatest task to keep her strength, tone and style,” they continued, according to the Guardian’s translation. “However, I realize that I am in a position to think and feel that way, where many are not. I still wish that her ideas reach as many readers as possible and open hearts.”



Dear people of Europe, I'm sorry this insanity is contagious.

See, this is a very misconception about Oreos.  It's not about interracial marriage, but is instead a metaphor of a human being.  A human which has dark skin but is forced to take on a white personality, or interiorly white if you will.  Thus, it's inherently racist because dark skinned people should be able to present as a dark skinned person in their personality as well.

Wait, shouldn't it be the other way around?  The black outside is what you present to others and you hide your inner white self?

I think Oreos describe white kids from the suburbs who dress and talk like inner city gang-bangers at the local Starbucks.  Then go home to study for their SAT.

Wait, shouldn't it be the other way around?  The black outside is what you present to others and you hide your inner white self?

So Oreos is like white people doing black face then?

Cancel the Oreos!

I think Oreos describe white kids from the suburbs who dress and talk like inner city gang-bangers at the local Starbucks.  Then go home to study for their SAT.
No no no, it's more like the Urkel stereotype.  Or a black person who isn't "black enough".  They are called Oreos.  The white gang-banger kids are the reverse or the Chocolate Oreos.

I don't know who this represents but I bet they need therapy.

You have deconstructed the Oreo!

That's the traditional way to eat Oreos, yes.

So you seperate the black from the white and then destroy the black?

I have changed my mind on oreos. We have an allegory here about how bring black just isn't good enough for racist America.

Paired with a white center. Coated with white fudge. Doused in white milk and finally consumed by the whitest symbol of corporate America and greed, Santa Claus.
